Architect: Walter Greaves
Location: Runcton, West Sussex
Client: The Modern House
This astonishing house, set in wonderful landscaped gardens extending to approximately 3 acres, was designed by the highly-regarded architect Walter Greaves as his family home in 1980. It is one of very few late 20th century houses to have been granted a rare Grade II* listing by Historic England, who describe it as “a particularly finely-executed example of post-war architecture”
Noted by Historic England as: “the finest work of an architect of considerable talent… the ultimate expression of his love of timber, creative approach to spatial planning and his meticulous skill for detail”. One of the distinctive features of this “house of striking originality and interest” is the elegant built-in furniture designed by Greaves.
